I started changing the subject but wasn't sure what to change it to.

The issue I have with the points is that they are ineffective alone for a
fight.  They need active countering.  We all need to take responsibility
for what is needed; to me it seems fighting for the right for private
property simply moves the struggle from direct control to economic control.

We need to build and maintain the libraries and infrastructure so that the
government doesn't.  We need to raise our communities' children and those
of our neighbors so that the government doesn't.  We need to put on mass
entertainment so that the government doesn't.  Etc etc etc.
